TV is amazing, and if you watch enough of it, things start to seep into your brain and never leave, until you’re just a walking, talking encyclopedia of references. What’s even better is when those references become so common and used by so many people in everyday speech that you hardly recognize them as references anymore. It’s just the way people talk. More
If the phrase, “Just watch, it gets so good after those very strange episodes” sounds familiar to you, then you’ll probably agree. More
One of my favorite Twitter phenomena is the parody account. Whether it’s someone pretending to be a celebrity and saying hilarious things or a reimagining of classic movie and TV show plots in the modern era, I’m always on the lookout for accounts to follow. So naturally I thought I’d share twelve of my favorites with you, in case there’s one or two or a dozen that you haven’t heard of but would love to follow. More
There I did it. I told you my deepest and darkest secret. And now it’s your turn! To make it a little easier for you to start sharing, I’ve asked our Crushable team as well as our sister sites’ editors and writers to start talking too. And man oh man, they did. Prepare to be shocked and floored and…and maybe relieved. You might not be as alone as you think. More
I decided it was about time somebody just took a bunch of ensemble sitcom casts and ranked them based on how much fun they’d be to hang out with. And that somebody might as well be me. More
I’ll admit that I haven’t been keeping up with the new episodes of Modern Family as well as I used to because it just hasn’t been grabbing my attention as of late. That is, until it decided to tear a storyline right from Seinfeld and then get called out on it by viewers. More
Jerry Seinfeld went on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to perform a stand-up set, and it just felt weird to me. I think it was because there was no puffy shirt. And by “puffy shirt,” I don’t literally mean it was weird because I can only enjoy his stand-up when he’s wearing a puffy pirate shirt. I mean it more metaphorically, as a reference to his show Seinfeld, aka the greatest comedy ever created, according to people who like to argue about that kind of thing. More

The following is a guest post from our friends at Luckymag.com.
Emma-Lee Moss (a.k.a. Emmy the Great) first caught our eye because she’s simply adorable—and not just because she poses next to a gingerbread house on the cover of her new album Virtue. Her music (she likes to call it “digital medieval”) is pretty and folksy, but not without edge. Kind of like her personal style. More

Curb Your Enthusiasm is now in its eighth season, and despite all of the new and noteworthy competition (e.g. Louie, Parks And Recreation & Modern Family), the show is still awesome. Critics are gushing over it, and ratings are higher than expected–”seven-year highs for its first three weeks,” reports Deadline.com. Even Larry David is excited about next season. Which is making us worried. More
When we interviewed Liz Gillies at the Victorious press junket, she mentioned that her show would be doing a crossover with Nickelodeon’s other big earner, iCarly, called iParty with Victorious: “It’s wild and fun, and there’s a really cool guest star.” With the special airing on June 11, Nick just released a behind-the-scenes video of stars Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice, plus their respective casts, performing a mash-up of their theme songs. Yep, they take the idea of a TV crossover very seriously. Oh, and Kenan Thompson is gonna be on it. More
While today you have free reign to squeal over furry little puppies, Gothamist points out that it’s also Chip & Dip Day. What better way to celebrate than with another installment of Food Tube, where I find TV shows that reference the food of the moment, with handy recipes. It’s surprising how many series had episodes referencing this handy snack; I tried to make the recipes match up as much as possible while still giving you enough variety of the “chips + dip” equation.

Snooki and Seinfeld’s Elaine: Twin Sisters? – Well, we know that Snooki, at least, is a better dancer. Otherwise the similarities are pretty eerie. (via CollegeCandy)
How can we forget the sad, drawn out Seinfeld love story between George and his ill-fated fiance Susan, who died from licking cheap wedding invitation envelopes? On the show, George wasn’t too upset about her loss — he was actually … More
